Rangers Report Card By afrey94 With the Olympics behind us and only about 25 percent of the season left before the start of the NHL playoffs, this seems as good a time as any to look back on the season so far.  Instead of simply gauging grades based on statistics…

318 Rangers-Penguins in review

Thoughts: 1) Hypothetical question? If you had your choice of beating Edmonton and losing in Pittsburgh or losing to Edmonton and winning in Pittsburgh, wouldn’t you have preferred this? Really too bad they tossed away that game vs. the Oilers, could/should have been six in a row going into the…

560 It’s Go Time! … Rangers at Penguins

Game 59. Rangers at Penguins. Well, the NHL’s Olympic-break roster freeze came and went, so Ryan Callahan will be a Ranger when he returns from Sochi. Then Glen Sather will have about nine days to trade him (March 5 trade deadline), sign him, or risk losing him for nothing…

Game review
159 Rangers-Oilers in review

Thoughts: 1) The Rangers weren’t God-awful, just awful enough to lose. They sure have played worse games than this one, but this was their worst in the last six, since that Islanders game at the Garden before the Stadium Series and the competitive loss to St. Louis. And that was…

568 It’s Go Time! … Oilers at Rangers

Game 58. Oilers at Rangers. Ya boys play the 6,000th game in franchise history. Tonight is their final home game before the Olympic break. They finish up in Pittsburgh tomorrow night, before the NHL shuts down for the Games in Sochi. The Rangers have won four in a row…

Game review
561 Rangers-Avalanches in review

Thoughts: 1) Ryan Callahan. He’s first not because he scored two goals and had an assist, seven hits, six shots on goal, and a blocked shot, or because he was the first star or because they were chanting his name at the Garden. He’s first because he’s overshadowing everything the…

348 It’s Go Time! … Avalanches at Rangers

Game 57. Avalanches at Rangers. The Rangers begin a stretch of three games in four nights that will led them into the Olympic break (and the Olympic break roster freeze, which runs Feb. 7-23). They host Edmonton Thursday and visit Pittsburgh Friday before scattering to all corner of the…

Game review
89 Rangers-Islanders in review

Thoughts: 1) The whole Ryan Callahan situation threw a cloud over the game, IMO. And will continue to hover over whatever the Rangers do from now until the March 5 trade deadline, or perhaps the Olympic-break roster freeze Feb. 7. If they think they won’t be able to re-sign Callahan,…

519 Rangers-Islanders in review

(Apologies … tech problems overnight prevented me from including photos in the review. Dammit). Thoughts: 1) I have no idea how this is going to turn out, but the trading deadline is closing in, with the two and a half weeks roster freeze over the Olympic break, and the Rangers…
